1 1 SoCo project Sustainable Agriculture and Soil Conservation Kick-off meeting Brussels, 10 October 2007

2 2 STRUCTURE OF THE PROJECT

3 3 WP1 - Stock-taking, assessment of the current situation Task 1.1 Assessment of the extent of the agricultural soil degradation problems and the corresponding soil conservation practices Task 1.1 a) Assessment of the nature and amplitude of the soil protection problem, a classification (typology)

4 4 WP1, Task 1.1. a) nature and amplitude of the soil protection problems COM(2006) 231 Soil Strategy Soil Threats Soil Erosion SOM Decline Soil Compaction (soil structure) Salinization Contamination COM(2006) 232 Soil Framework Directive Common Agriculture Policy Rural Development Policy Soil conservation measures

5 5 Set a common areas of interest for SoCo project The analysis will be carried out for agriculture areas (Moss, D. (1998): EUNIS habitat classification). Agricultural areas based on CLC90Agricultural areas based on CLC2000

6 6 Link with other WP1 Tasks } Task 1.1 a) Assessment of the extent of the agricultural soil degradation problems and the corresponding soil conservation practices Task 1.1 b) Description of the relevant practices/technologies including generally available information on their economics and effectiveness under various (natural, geographical, climatic and agri- environmental) conditions Overlay between soil degradation and agricultural conservation practices

7 7 Task 2.2 Developing a common framework for policy analysis. This framework shall take into account the different types of policies, institutional settings, actors, etc. It will also specify the policy assessment criteria to be applied in the case studies. Task 2.3 Case studies Sub-task 2.3(b) Case study Marche, Italy

8 8 Task 2.3 Case studies Sub-task 2.3(b) Case study Marche, Italy Why the Marche region? Analysis and evaluation of sustainable agriculture and soil conservation at local scale (regional scale) Possibility to answer simple questions: Are the conservation measures applied in areas at risk of soil degradation? Is it possible to evaluate the effectiveness of the conservation measures (monitoring)? Possibility to extend the results to the Apennines areas of Italy

9 9 How will Task 2.3 be managed? - Collaboration Agreement with the Marche Region Analysis of the Rural Development Plan (ex post evaluation) and (ex ante evaluation) Ref. UE STAR Indicators Definition of the soil degradation processes in the Marche region and link with the agri- environmental measures. - Framework Contract for study on soil degradation /agricultural conservation measures

10 10 Task 2.3 Case studies Sub-task 2.3(b) Case study Marche, Italy Cross-compliance (CAP) Rural Development Plan Marche Region Soil degradation Processes Policy Analysis, effectiveness of the measures Analysis of Rural Development Plan (ex post evaluation) and (ex ante evaluation) Ref. UE STAR Indicators Soil Monitoring

11 11 Task 2.3 Case studies Sub-task 2.3(b) Case study Marche, Italy Soil Monitoring Analysis of Rural Development Plan (ex post evaluation) and (ex ante evaluation) Ref. UE STAR Indicators Policy Analysis, effectiveness of the measures
